I don’t remember exactly when I fell in love with books. I remember laying in bed with my grandmother, listening to her read to me. I remember sitting in the grass in our backyard reading the Little House series, being so wrapped up in the world Laura Ingalls Wilder created that I forgot everything around me. I remember the first time I stepped into a Borders, the smell of the coffee and freshly printed books overwhelming me so much that if I close my eyes I can still remember that smell exactly.
Books have been the one constant in my life. When things got crazy, I could always hide in a book. When I needed the answer to a burning question, someone out there had the answer for me, neatly typed and easy to access.
So it makes sense that I would have become a writer. And it makes sense that as I approach a new turn in my life I would point myself down the path littered with the most books.
What I’m getting at is that the focus of this blog is about to change. After a lot of thought I have decided to dedicate this website to the books I love so dearly. I hope it will become a place where authors and other book lovers can come to get information and opinions about fiction, literature, books, book design, self-publishing and other random book-oriented stuff. I will continue writing fiction and as I finish projects I will list them in the My Projects page. I will also be adding services for writers over the next few months. Website design, book cover design/layout, launch and kickstarter consulting, social media and marketing help are all part of what I hope to roll out in the near future.
More than anything else, I want to share my love of all things books with others. I hope you enjoy the content and please, as always, comment below or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any thoughts.
